George Leaney

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of George Leaney yesterday morning in The Tunbridge Wells and Pembury hospital after a short illness.


George was an uncompromising second row who played at high level in the Army during National Service and for London Irish as well as for Old Skinners’ in the 60’s and early 70’s. He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with his wife Skip and his family.

Funeral service to be held on 31st July at 3pm at:

Kent and Sussex Crematorium
Benhall Mill Road
Tunbridge Wells
Kent TN2 5JJ

Family flowers only.  Donations to Cancer Research UK

One response to “George Leaney”

  1. Martin and Thea Bentham have been thinking about George Leaney for some time but all our attempts to email him have been returned, so we “Googled ” him today and saw the sad news of his death. Skip and the boys will remember us from the Horam Inn and RFC. We would love to contact Skip if possible to offer our very belated condolences.
